The CARIFEST PARADE [ROUTE] starts at 11AM at Olympic Plaza with hundreds of masqueraders dancing to the rhythms of Caribbean Music down Stephen Avenue to Shaw Millennium Park. Later in the evening from 2PM to 8PM the SUNSHINE FESTIVAL will take place at Shaw Millennium Park with live performances!
In 2019 we were so excited to bring Barbados’ foremost female Soca star, Alison Hinds and Trinidad’s princess, Patrice Roberts! They both sang their timeless Soca hits and dominated the stage with energetic performances.
Keep checking back to find out who we’ll be bringing to Carifest 2021! You wont want to miss this epic event!
